We go to Clarks every year. This year we went with a larger family group. There is something for everyone at Clarks. My favorite is the bear show!! There's also the train ride and the wolfman, Merlin's House, the Chinese acrobats, etc. We usually end up spending most of the day. We always stop at Kilburn's Photo Parlor and bring... More

After going to NH many times, I wanted to see what CTP was for myself. My family of for enjoyed our stay. I was a bit disappointed about how small it was. We did the "must do" stuff here which included he bear show and the train ride, As for the bears, I did get the impression they were cared... More

As a kid, I started visiting Clark's over 50 years ago. Now, with our kids in tow, we make an annual pilgrimage to this one-of-a-kind place and we're never disappointed!! Seriously, name one other attraction you can visit that has a combination of trained bear acts and Chinese acrobats -- not to mention fabulous antiques exhibits, a steam locomotive chased... More

We took our daughter to Clark' s many years ago and enjoyed it immensely. Today, we had the pleasure of taking our 5 year old grandson and we all had a ball. Both the Chinese acrobats and the bear shows were amazing. The museums were such fun to go through and held the interest of a five year old. Who... More

This place is small but awesome. We spent the whole day and loved it completely, The Clark Family is wonderful with their bears (and I don't generally approve of a lot of trained wild animal acts) and they obviously love them as part of their family. It was very educational as well and I believe helps people to understand the... More

Took my children here when they were young, brought the grandchildren this year, they loved it, kept them busy for several hours. Both of them loved the bear show and the acrobats.

It's easy to spend a whole day exploring the attractions at Clarks. It is family orientated and they manage to keep the adults amused at the same time. Their wood fired steam engine is a working antique and a marvel to watch in action. We’ve been here every year for the past 7 years and Clarks always reinvests into their... More

Geared towards the young family but, fun for all ages. The bear show and Chinese acrobats are very professionally performed. The train is really neat.

Went with a 10 year old and a 13 year old who really enjoyed the sights and sounds. There is a steam train ride to Wolfman's cave and beyond, then back at the entrance to the Victorian "town," we saw a Black Bear Show...very interesting, and a circus act, lots of fun. There are small shops for food and trinkets,... More

So glad we made it to Clark's. The place and people are kitsch at its finest. From the train ride with a wolf man harassing the train to the slanted house - the staff are there to entertain you with family friendly and quirky humor. The bear show is awesome. They have several shows during the day and they were... More
